    As some of you know i work for O'reilly's auto parts, I deliever special order parts to the store for customers.. basically if they dont have it and the warehouse does, i take it to the store so they can sell it...

    Well as im getting things together to take to one of my stores i notice some exaughst tips from APC... well since i didnt know APC sold exaughst tips i looked at them...

    Well lets put it this way... they look like the coffie can exaughst but... when you look inside of them you notice a bunch of red l.e.d. lights in there... its the stupidist thing i have seen yet...

    Oh yea.. every store i deliever to has them and are selling them like hot cakes.... Just what i wanted to do.. lets put electrical wires right next to the HOT exaughst so it melts the wires...

    i can see it now..

    "sorry officer i didnt know that if the wires got melted by my exaughst that the wires could spark off the metal and ignite the fumes coming out the exaughst pipe and give the little old lady behind me a major sun burn..."

    What they wont do to there cars.... we should shoot them all and use there cars to test out the flex on the blazers...

    My dad sells those but it's not by APC I think it's toucan or something like that... whatever they used in Fast and the Furious. He showed me one he had at his house the other day. Pretty funny cause it had a 9 volt battery taped to it. Granted I know this is just to show it but the concept itself is kinda funny.

    My father in laws Mid-80's Chev 3/4 pickup shoots fire out tailpipe. I borrowed it once and whenever I let off gas, flames would come out both sides (dual exauhst) He's got some serious timing issues I think. Anyway, I'm gonna call him and let him know how "street" he is tommorow.

    2. Light up window washers 0HP
    3. Neon in the car and under the car 0HP
    4. Light up tail pipe 0HP
    5. Stickers everywhere 0HP
    6. HUGE wing in the back 0HP
    7. Plastic Sh!t everywhere 0HP
    Am I missing something?

    arent you guys/grls glad that the 4x4 hobby is out of its lame-accessory phase? Some of the old 80s 4x4 mags I have seen have some terrible stuff in 'em. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
